Ocordo, a Dutch Warmblood, was a son of the matchless Olympic Concorde (Jos Lansink) and came from a mother who was the full sister of Carrera La Silla, an outstanding international competitor who won the Grand Prix at Aachen and participated in several Nations Cup events. Ocordo, a talented jumper in the prime of his life and on an upward career track, left this world too soon and will be deeply missed by our staff, his longtime rider Erin Davis Walsh, and all of his admirers. His true greatness lives on in the foal crops he left with us and the hope they carry forward into the future.
Ocordo is by the outstanding sire Olympic Concorde, who, guided by Jos Lansink, won the Grand Prix at Aachen and the Dutch National Championships, among many other successes. Concorde is himself by in incomparable Voltaire, one of the highest ranking sires among sporthorses worldwide for the past decade.
Ocordo’s dam, Katosca, is a full sister to another Aachen winner, Osta Carpets Carrera, who is today owned by the studbook La Silla.
Great jumping genetics combine in Ocordo, a beautiful and capable stallion of enormous personality and charisma. Imported as a six year old and brought up carefully through the levels, Ocordo began showing in Grand Prix and international competitions in the last several years. He exhibits great interest in his work, careful and bold on course, and demonstrates his tremendous scope in the most difficult of combinations.
This exciting stallion, who is really just at the beginning of what promises to be a very triumphant career, offers a pedigree crammed with proven jumping abilities backed up by very solid and serious show records among many family members, a resume to be seriously considered for those looking to produce highly competitive prospects.
Ocordo passed away following an accident in 2009. He is available for breeding with high quality frozen semen processed by Select Breeders.
Since his importation, Ocordo has competed in venues across the United States, competing on tough courses among some of the most accomplished horse and rider combinations in the country. His star is on the rise and we are really enjoying the ride!

Voltaire has sired offspring that have gone on to be successful in both the show jumping and dressage arenas. Voltaire sired such horses as Concorde, Royal Kaliber, Response, Finesse, Play it Again, Altaire, Especiale, Kannan, Lemato, Mezcalero (represented Mexico in the 1998 World Equestrian Games, and jumped in many Nations Cup competitions under rider Frederico Fernandez), Farmer (sire of Olympic reserve Lowina), Ecuador (sire of 2004 Dutch Olympic dressage team member Idocus), Lancelot KWPN (ex Nimmerdor, and sire of Pavorotti, Tristan, Parcival, SF Sadin,and many more international horses), and One More Look (high-scoring foal at the NASFA 2002 Foal Evaluations). Other notable offspring include Foltaire (international dressage horse ridden by Guenter Seidel), Helios, Electro, Danta, and Kahlua. Some of Voltaire’s successful hunter offspring include: Churchill, Popeye K, Blink, High Cotton, King de Coquerie, and Moriah.
Ocordo is out of Katosca, a daughter of Joost out of a mare by Abgar. The KWPN preferent stallion Joost was a top progenitor of show jumpers and was ranked highly on the index. He had many international offspring including the approved stallions Hay Guy, Palfrenier, Ommen, VIP, and Carrera, Attentz B, Satchmo, Jongger II, and Germus R. He had several KWPN approved sons like: Attent, Germus R, Hay Guy, Palfrenier, Radbound, Ultrazon, and had a breeding value of 148. Joost himself was by Consul (by Cottage Son) out of an Anblick xx dam, two of Holstein’s most important foundation sires.
The combination of Joost and Abgar became a very famous mix for show jumpers and included international competitors like: Ommen, VIP, Carrera, Germus R and Palfrenier and many others.
Olympic Concorde, with Jos Lansink, won the Grand Prix of Nordrhein-Westfalen at Aken and they were Champion of the Netherlands in 1994, 2nd in the Grand Prix of Amsterdam, 2nd at Darmstadt , 2nd at Lanaken, and 2nd in Helsinki and Gothenburg. The last three years Concorde was the sire with the most offspring at the World Breeding Championships for young horses. In the year 2001 the “preferent” Concorde has proved himself to be an absolute top sire of international sporthorses. Concorde’s dam, Flyer, is by the legendary Marco Polo, one of the most influential Dutch stallions in breeding and jumping
In the Grand Prix of Rotterdam, 3 from the top 8, had Concorde to thank as their sire. At the international horseshow of Maastricht , Concorde had 11 offspring in the international finals! Concorde was the youngest stallion ever to be awarded “preferent”, due to his endless list of national and international children.
Ocordo has produced several foal crops and has become increasingly popular as a sire for attractive, beautiful individuals with the skills required to be competitive showing prospects. While all the offspring are beautifully marked and exhibit exceedingly nice type, they are also very athletic and elastic in their carriage and movement. The older foals which we have free jumped show the intelligence and care for the work that Ocordo himself exhibits. We expect great things from these youngsters and look forward to seeing more of them headed to the arena.
Ocordo is a good cross for mares who need improvement in the topline and in overall type. He improves gait quality as well, especially in the canter. Breeders should consider using mares with some Thoroughbred in the second or third generation.
